If you go at the right time you can get some great photos with the fountain and the river and downtown JAX right behind you with the sun lighting up the city. There is not much more around the fountain because it's on the opposite side of the river from most of the riverfront area. It is a nice place... More

Very nice at night. The walk along the river has improved tremendously. Something worth doing at night to really get the experience of the lights.

This is a pretty fountain to stroll around with a friend or loved one. Then if you'd like you can enjoy the nearby Riverwalk to stroll along the riverside. Very beautiful lighting at night as well.

I was very beautiful, went at night with all the lights, very nice walking area, love the view of the river, and even saw boats docked near by with Christmas lights on them, recommend it as a must see place.

I've lived in Jacksonville for almost all my life, and I always love to go to this fountain. Be warned though, the area has declined in the past few years and I've met some creepy characters around here at night. I'd suggest going at popular times with more people.

As title say, if you have time, I recommend taking a walk over the bridge to get to the fountain. It's just like any other fountain but it's nice. At night, they have light It's beautiful to see it from Jacksonville Landing. Nearby the fountain, there is a brewery that you can check out.

We were staying within walking distance and went twice (once by day and once by night). It simply must be seen at night with all the lights. Everyone was nice/friendly and we felt safe. The park is beautiful with plenty of places to sit and enjoy. The fountain is large and beautiful. The location (on the river) makes it even... More
